Ferries to host virtual community meetings with an update on service restoration

SEATTLE – Have a question for Washington State Ferries? Riders and other community members are encouraged to attend upcoming virtual community meetings designed to provide updates about the ferry system. 

At 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11, and 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12, WSF staff will discuss the ferry system's service restoration progress (PDF 631KB), ongoing efforts to address workforce challenges as well as updates on key projects. WSF Assistant Secretary Patty Rubstello will lead the meetings in coordination with the Ferry Advisory Committees, appointed representatives of ferry-served communities who advise WSF.

Both events will cover the same material and are designed to give participants the option to join the Zoom meeting that best fits their schedule. Meeting participants will be able to ask questions and provide comments.
